exactly the obama administration thinks these strikes are legal. they say, let me say as simply as i can, "in full accordance with the law, the united states government conducted targeted strikes." "in full accordance with the law." we know that they do think it's legal. but they won't say why they think it's legal. the closest we have come to learning about how the obama administration justifies drone strikes is this. in the fall of 2011, "new york times" reporter charlie savage wrote this story. this is about a week after al awlaki was killed. the story describes a super secret 50-page memo written by an office within the justice department that effectively serves as the obama's administration's legal justification for why they think it's okay to kill an american citizen without a trial. now "the new york times" did not actually get to see this memo. they did not publish the memo, nor did they quote from it directly. the momentum mow was described to the reporter by anonymous sources. and that's when things got really weird, because after the "times" reported on the existence of the me
